Additional info
The album was released on CD (Mordgrimm Records) and LP (Gilead Media).

The album was recorded intermittently both at Eidola Studios (Dorset) and Priory Studios (Staffordshire) between April and August 2012. Mixed and Mastered by Greg Chandler at Priory Studios.

All music and lyrics were written by Vortigern.

Ever wondered what Esoteric might sound like if they played black metal? Well wonder no more. Featuring Esoteric's Greg Chandler, as well as members from UK black metal masterclasses Archaicus and Omega Centauri, this has literally become the crème de la crème of England's extreme metal talent. The result is quite incredible and I predict this will top most people's black metal lists this year.

Still a great album. Still very Opeth-y to me.

New song out

I really don't know what to think of it, I do like it, but I feel it's kinda messy, like there's been too much focus on the pipe organs and the overall sound feels a bit unnatural. It made me feel uneasy but not in a pleasant way.

Yeah I liked some parts of it but a lot of it felt disjointed and lacking flow. Hopefully not representative of the rest of the album.

Fingers crossed.
